We thoroughly enjoyed our previous Viking River Cruise and we liked the prospect of a smaller ship with fewer guests for our ocean cruise. The itinerary was one we had not done before and the dates worked well for us. Also, the added pre and post trips made this a full 3 week adventure.
Due to the length of the flight to Europe, we asked Viking Air Department to upgrade our air, which was a great decision.
Since the cruise was 15 days, we also asked to upgrade our cabin. Our cabin was extremely comfortable, spacious and well appointed.
Everyone working on the ship was helpful, cheerful, knowledgeable and very approachable. No one ever said they could not do something or accommodate some request!
The excursions we took were all well planned, timed appropriately and very worthwhile.
The food in the various restaurants was great and varied. We especially liked the included wine and soft drinks at lunch and dinner.
The spa was beautiful, restful and a needed respite after a day of touring. We loved that the use of the spa facilities was included in our cruise and we were happy to pay for any additional services that we arranged.
The entertainment was first rate and totally enjoyable. The theater has a state-of-the-art projection and sound system making the theater productions even more amazing and creative.
We enjoyed this cruise so much that we booked our next Viking Ocean Cruise in December of 2018 to the Amazon River. We even booked the same cabin!!
Spacious, comfortable, well appointed, USB charghing ports everywhere, spacious balcony.
